Steve Jobs on iPhone 2G compatibility: “Sorry, no.”

Are you still using an original iPhone with its aluminum casing? You have been a worthy companion throughout the years, have you not? Even without 3G, GPS, or compass, it still runs almost everything the latest iPhone 3GS does, but that’s about to come to an end.

An iPhone owner named Niko emailed Steve Jobs about it, and received a response from the Apple CEO directly with a disappointing answer.

The email sent to Steve Jobs read: “Hi Steve! Is Apple supporting / updating the iPhone 2G in the future? “

Steve Jobs replied, “Sorry, no.”

Unless some hackers find a way to force iPhone OS 4.0 to work fine with the original iPhone model, it could be the end of the line for early adopters. However, it has been a good three-year journey.
